Wilmette’s Warming House Survives After Major Funding Cut

The center provides programs, services and supervision to about 75 teens a month.

 

Two years ago when United Way reduced its funding for Wilmette’s Warming House, the institution which provides programs, services and supervision to about 75 teens per month had to reduce its annual budget from $130,000 to $100,000, cut the center’s hours and focus more on fundraising, Chicago Tribune reported. 

Cynthia Doucette, executive director of the Warming House who has worked at the center for 14 years, says placing a greater emphasis on fundraising was not necessarily a bad thing because it thrust the Warming House into the community even more and some teens say they like helping to fundraise and give back to the center, Chicago Tribune reported.
